Opera plot… or not?

Operas can be all kinds of crazy – but sometimes history can give Verdi and his fellow composers a run for their money. Can you guess which of these bizarre and shocking tales are from opera and which really happened in the  historic Tower of London?

Click here to take the quiz and see if you can beat my score of 12 out of 14.

I know nothing about opera and rarely (if ever) watch or read anything about the history of England. But many of these tales sounded familiar, so I assumed I heard them while touring the Tower of London. It’s been over 20 years, but I did go on the same  tour 3 times in a period of less than 3 years.
